Our burro loves to kiss celebrity and/or moneyed ass, be it Dave & Brit or Bear & Kitty or even Julie Hagerty:
Missing Lilly, Donkey, or just hoping for another invite to Avocado’s moneyed momma’s Hawaiian digs?
Yoo hoo, High Fashion Editor! I’ll hook you up at Burning Man if I can do NYFW coverage for GLAMOUR!
Wow. Just. Wow. What a Bad Ass Burro! And you kittens were saying she’s all washed up. Donkey’s suck ups have paid off! Look what just popped up on our very own Goodnight Wangs’ Yahoo page:
Update: Rhoda, my dear assistant, and I had some big laughs this afternoon over Cory Tanner Glazier’s (the former mark who Donkey took home to meet Momsers) earth-shattering announcement:
Oh nose! Looks like the former Corsters caught diarrhea of the keyboard from Ali Shanti:
I’m changing my name to Christopher Life.
Name changing is normal in many cultural traditions to support the transition from boy to man, lending well to the recalibration of self-perception and drawing a line in the sand to powerfully claim a new phase of life. Over the last several years life has brought me an incredible son, an impeccably aligned wife, business successes and failures, deep transformation and growth, and a deeper spirituality. I feel like now is a meaningful time to step across a threshold from boy to man and signify that with the letting go of the name of my boy and embracing a new identity.
Why ‘Christopher’ and why ‘Life’ ?
The reason behind ‘Christopher’ as a first name is simple… it just feels right. If you know me and see who I’m becoming, then feel it out for yourself. Can you connect to the current, and even future version of myself at 40, 45, 50… as Christopher? I can. The name holds a certain tone that affirms in me a responsibility in how I show up each day with dignity, an open-heart, clear leadership, grace, compassion, ease, care and personal power.
The reasons behind ‘Life’ are more involved… This last year Adelle and I wed. (Side note: I had no idea being married would be so amazing! I’m so in love with my wife and with our marriage!) In this phase of marriage we are also thinking of children and posterity. A family name plays a central role in the identity of that family and the family line. It felt true for us to create a fresh start to our line, not in rejection of our past, but in service to new beginnings. We cherish our family lines that delivered us up to this moment, but do not feel an obligation to carry those name in order to live in genuine honor and respect of them. In exploring a new family line, we thought about the function of a last name itself… to signify the bloodline from whence you came. In thinking this through further, I left into my previous last name, Glazier, which is the name of a craft of cutting and placing glass. Well, who were my blood line before glass? How far do my roots go… to the beginning of Homo sapiens? What came before humans? Humans emerged from the animal kingdom and animals emerged from the plant kingdom. You could make a case that the first cells on earth are the furthest reaches of my biological ancestry, which is really a recognition that we have emerged from the line of Life itself. Furthermore, as we are waking up to see this planet as our home and all plants and animals and fellow inhabitants, even siblings sharing the same mother… than it is the entirety of Life itself that we choose to identify with. As individuals we are sovereign (first name), and as cells in the body of life we are united with all life today (unity). With this naming convention our very names themselves point to the true nature of our interdependence will all creation and our maturation into sovereignty and unity, which we call ‘sovereign unity.’
Why do people call me ‘Star’ sometimes? At Burning Man years ago I took on Star as a playa name. In homage to lineage, you may be familiar that all the elements that make up our physical body come from previously exploded stars and all the energy that makes up our electrical circuitry comes from the local star (Sun), and so it is safe to say that we are reorganized star-matter and star-energy, living as humans. The name Star reminds me of my cosmic lineage and our nature, as beings of light, able to emit light into the world.
Is Adelle changing her last name too? Yes. Going forward, Adelle’s last name will be ‘Life’ as well.
Do I want you to start calling me Christopher? Honestly, I really don’t care. You can refer to me by whatever you like. You are welcome to call me Cory for as long as it feels natural and comfortable to you. Likely, over time, the name Cory will start to feel more and more stale… and as that occurs, you may find that it actually feels more naturally to use the new name to address me. If you’re gung ho, then feel free to address me as Christopher effective immediately.
My Facebook, email and other digital identity aspects will be changing as well. Yes, this will be a formal, legal, official name change.
Thank you for taking the time to review this share today. It’s time to step into the next phase of life, fully.

Jesus H. Christ, this clown is pushing 40 and he’s just transitioning to manhood? Good of him to issue a drug-fueled PR release, complete with faxutographer credit, celebrating this historic moment. Julia Allison and I are SO PROUD of Cory 2.0 or Star or Christopher or whatever the fuck his name is:
